“I don't sell happiness, that's a free extra!”

PIET Moodshop is Christophe Verbeke's new store. He is an interior designer who has spent many years setting the scene for parties and events, with a great deal of passion and a keen sense for aesthetics. PIET Moodshop is simply his passion for design translated into a store that is full of great items, allowing him to reach large numbers of people and make them happy.

So Christophe, what is a moodshop exactly?

You'll have a hard time finding a definition. It's more of an ambition. I run a shop that makes people happy. Not just because you're bound to find a suitable designer gift for both men and women here, but mainly because the items are just nice to look at.

Happiness is a kind of by-product, a side effect that is thrown in for free. This is because I only choose things that I personally like or consider quirky, and it's a feeling that is confirmed by my customers. People literally tell me that they come here to wander around the store and then leave feeling much happier than before.

And PIET? Who is Piet anyway, Christophe?

PIET is part of Sint-PIETersnieuwstraat in Gent. It's right opposite the Vooruit arts centre, in a historic property that was originally a pharmacy and where there used to be a lingerie store before I opened my doors. No traces of the lingerie store still remain, but the old racks and drawers of the former pharmacy still set the scene for the beautiful building. I hope that we also manage to convey this atmosphere to our virtual customers.
